Generations have commemorated their unplumbed contribution to world sports and will continue to do so. So here we present top 5 legendary sports personalities in the world.


The question that arises first and foremost is who or what is a legend. A legend is determined not merely by their ascent to the peak of their chosen trade, but more particularly by their tenacity and enthusiasm to preserve that same level of matchless privileged performance, shielding their title from incessant waves of challenges. After much consideration of a wide range of parameters, 5 of the most iconic and legendary sports personalities are here before you. Have a look!


Michael Schumacher



There are many who the world considers as 'Great' and those who are seen as 'Legends' in their individual fields. But very few imitate their immensity outside the bubble of what they're good at doing. Michael Schumacher is one such extraordinary legend. Schumacher reigns in the privileged, extremely competitive, and alluring world of Formula One (F1) auto racing. He has broken the world records for most wins and most championship points in F1. The path to car racing started with Formula Ford or Formula Koenig, as it was known in Germany. Perhaps the greatest F1 driver in history, Schumacher is also one of the highest-paid athletes in the world. The most successful driver in the history of the sport, Schumacher holds the records for the most World Championship titles (7), the most Grand Prix wins (91), the most fastest laps (77) and the most races won in a single season (13), and according to the official Formula One website, Schumacher is statistically the greatest driver the sport
has ever seen.





Pelé, a name branded around the world, a sports legend who changed soccer eternally, and a hero who carried the desires and dreams of a country on his back. But before he was an icon, he was a kid from the slums of São Paulo, Brazil, so poor that he couldn’t afford a real soccer ball. Charting his dramatic rise-from scrubbing floors to support his family to honing his thrilling playing style on the streets to leading Brazil’s national team to its first World Cup victory at the age of 17 - Pelé intensely brings to life the greatest sports story of the 20th century. Pelé is fairly known as the greatest soccer player in history. The Brazilian athlete is a three-time FIFA World Cup champion, and he has scored more goals than anyone else in the history of the sport.


Shane Warne



The name Shane Warne is one of most eminent and charming in the sport of cricket. Even if you aren’t a huge admirer of the game, Warne is someone most people will have heard of and someone most would be aware holds a fair amount of admiration. He is perhaps the greatest spin bowler, cricket has ever seen. He is also a pretty good batsman as well and could without doubt be called an all-rounder had it not been for his formidable bowling stats. His truly extraordinary leg-spin-bowling technique has dismissed some of the most practised and competent batsmen in the world. His name will everlastingly be linked with the finest cricket the world has ever seen. His bowling style is revolutionary and is likely to be compared to and mimicked for many years to come.
